I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Yesterday: A Reunion with Warrington
I am quite fond of Warrington as I went to school not too far away at Great Budworth. In those days in 1966 of course heading out of town on the Wilderspool Road towards Northwich would have been very fine North Western Park Royal bodied AEC Renowns as that Cheshire outpost was their principal home. Still it's good to see the town of Warrington still has it's own buses and they are still a lovely red. I imagine this one of many of these attractiveWright bodied single-deckers and must be a Dennis Dart although the wheel-trims remind me more of the Scania. It's at least ten years since I last paid a visit and buswise much has changed and this being a Saturday no double-deckers were in service although there were still plenty in the garage nearby.
